In order to meet the growing demand from dog lovers across the border in Canada and across the ocean in the UK, Planet Dog has partnered with 2 new Planet Dog Champions and Distributors. Planet Dog has formed a new partnership in Canada with Natural Pet Distributors and in the United Kingdom with Ianick Trading Company. Both of these leading pet product distributors will help bring Planet Dog's innovative, eco-friendly and socially responsible pet products to dog lovers in Canada and the UK.
"We chose these distributors because of our shared mission and commitment to pets, consumers and retailers," says Stephanie Volo, Planet Dog's President." We feel good about them representing our brand and are very excited about the growth we expect as a result of both partnerships," adds Volo.
Planet Dog was created to foster a harmonious co-existence between people and their companion animals by offering products that enhance the quality of life they spend together. Their dedication to pets' well-being ensures products that are safe and fun. They have been tested by their own dogs and are 100% guaranteed. Their commitment to retailers offers them solid profit margins and products of the highest quality that are category leaders.
Natural Pet Distributors is committed to educating Canadian customers about the benefits of natural and holistic pet products. Natural Pet Distributors is based in Ontario and will represent all of Canada.
"We represent companies like Planet Dog that have a long history of manufacturing the highest quality products," says Alexandra Wilcox, Owner of Natural Pet Distributors. "We have always admired Planet Dog as a brand so we are honored to offer our valued retailers across Canada the best toys on the Planet," adds Wilcox.
Ianick Trading Company, the UK's leading pet wholesaler, also represents only the very best quality pet products. Like Natural Pet Distributors in Canada, their admiration of the Planet Dog brand placed the U.S. company on the top of their most wanted list.
"In a world where dog toys are ten a penny, it is not just unusual, but almost unique to find a company of the Planet Dog persuasion," says Nick McCulloch, Pack Leader for The Ianick Trading Company. "Not only is it their passion and enthusiasm to engineer what we believe to be some of the best, most innovative and original toys on the planet, but also the ethos, ethic and philanthropic nature at the heart of Planet Dog (and the wonderful work of the Planet Dog Foundation) that made them of interest to us. We share many of the values at the core of the Planet dog brand and mission. We know we can do great things with Planet Dog in the UK, not only because it's a great product, but because it is a great story. We're looking forward to a long, fruitful and fun journey on Planet Dog!" adds McCulloch.
Planet Dog's products not only enhance the lives that people share with their best friends, but they are socially responsible too. The company gives a percentage of every Planet Dog purchase directly to their philanthropic arm, the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF). Since 2006, the Foundation, whose mission is to promote and celebrate programs in which dogs serve and support their best friends, has donated more than a half a million dollars in cash and in-kind donations to worthy non-profits nationwide.
Whether creating great products, providing financial resources or helping to raise awareness about outstanding canine service programs, Planet Dog is proud to be a pet industry leader with proven initiatives that bring people and dogs together for fun and mutual support.
